Shortly afterwards, Hercule Poirot receives a visit from the dead man's sister-in-law, who claims she has been warned by "spirits" that Mrs Underhay's first husband is still alive. Poirot has his suspicions when he is asked to find a missing person guided only by the spirit world. Yet what mystifies Poirot most is the woman's true motive for approaching him.

"Really Good Mystery Very Well Told"
Hugh Fraser was a fantastic story teller as always and Agatha's story was intruiging and thrilling. Very enjoyable.
"Twists and turns"
I thought I had read all the Poirot cases and was pleased to find this one. It did not disappoint.
If you are a fan of Agatha Christie and the Poirot tv adaptations this is a great way to introduce you to one of the books.
"Taken at the Flood"
If you like Christie generally then you'll enjoy this. It doesn't quite have you on the edge of your seat but Hercule is as charming as ever and the plot is not too taxing. Quite a twist at the end, worth the wait.
"I'm not sure if I could be a good day to the gym"
The fact I can get it right away with the new version is better to be the first half of the day before I get a follow back on my way home from work to be the first half of the year of high quality of life
